|The toad discovered at Natural Bridge|
I have been slacking so much on my blog this summer....I cant decide what to write about...There has been so much good that I cant pick and choose the best! We have been busy, playing, laughing, running, soaking up sun. I feel like a kid again....I have removed all schedules, bed times, structure. We are going with the flow, riding the waves....and it feels good. I know for certain I may regret the removal of all organization when my kids throw down a massive fight as I try to prepare them for the upcoming school year.....but in the scheme of things it will be worth it.
We have spent much time together as a family, I don't miss the shift work of days passed. Devan is home for dinner each night and we enjoy family breakfast each morning. We are enjoying each other so much each day. Squeezing every drop from this life sponge sitting before us!
This summer has even brought me to a place where I have stepped out of my comfort zone a few times and gone on a couple day trips with OUT my kiddos.....This is rare....but good, and I enjoyed the adult conversation and company.
Parklen has done well this summer, he has felt better, kept up with his brother, grown a ton and cracks us up every day.....its hard to believe that a year ago he had just learned how to walk and was unable to speak, he talks perfectly now and runs like crazy.
|The boys have asked me for a pet snake since the day they saw this one at Natural Bridge.....|
|I will continue to say NO!!|
